Inter race dating
After the couple has listened carefully, they are prepared to converse and defend the relationship, if necessary. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit (Philippians 2:3). One of the worst reasons to pursue a relationship is because the family is against it.
To enter a marriage in order to prove someone wrong is selfish and unloving to everyone involved. The Christian is willing to forfeit battles for the love of all involved.
Whether it’s your family or your significant other’s, listening to their questions and concerns will better equip you to address them.
It also guards you from making rash judgments that are merely speculative.
Will it be harder to be married to another race, and will it be harder for the kids? What I would like to provide here is biblical and practical advice on to how to engage a disapproving family, whether it is your own or your significant other’s, toward the ends of God being glorified, sin mortified, Satan horrified, and all involved edified. The term “enemy” may sound a bit harsh to some, but when a family is opposing you or your relationship simply because of the racial dynamic (while simultaneously making a relationship with a potential spouse more difficult), it’s hard to view them as anything else. Biblical love is the basis for everything I have to say here. The Scriptures call us to love that prevails and changes our current circumstances.
Here are five biblical principles applied to engaging a disapproving family. Without love, you will simply be “a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal” (1 Corinthians 13:1).
One day we shall win freedom but not only for ourselves.
We shall so appeal to your heart and conscience that we shall win you in the process and our victory will be a double victory (, 56).
It would be unwise and unfruitful to pull the race card hastily when a family has legitimate concerns about an interracial relationship.This can be hard when those closest to you remain stubborn and selfish, spewing hatred and condescending remarks about your relationship or significant other.
